The Santa Barbara twig

December 4th, on Barbromesse, Santa Barbara Day, I cut a twig from the plumtree and took it indoors to let it grow in lukewarm water. It was supposed to bloom on Christmas Day.
I suppose our Nordic winter is too dark and cold, as very little has happened to the twig yet.

My Barbara twigs always bloom a little before Christmas, as they do not need so much time. This year I had forsythias. I cut another just before Christmas and it was blooming when we returned home from our holidays in the mountains. Now I have a bit of Spring in my guestroom :-) !
